As with many of us Goldstein’s role for the role of Hercules was a shock to Goldstein. Goldstein was approached from afar for the role during the last minute Zoom interview with one of the movie’s directors that was arranged by his management. Goldstein described the process in a recently-released interview on the Playlist in which he said “They change their positions, and they say that it’s Hercules You are the one. And I said”What? “, like, ‘Are they serious? Is this a joke? Do you think this is a wind-up?”So yeah, it was as fascinating to me as it is to others people.”Amid the surprise of being chosen for the role of the role of the Greek god Goldstein disclosed how he quickly confronted by his own realization that he did not possess the physical strength to play the part of Hercules. Goldstein expressed his worries to Love and Thunder director Taika Watiti who advised him that the actor had two weeks to complete training. “Yeah I was talking to Taika I told her “You know I’m pretty much an overweight comedian I said “When will this be filming?’ She said in two weeks. I thought “I’ll try my best but two weeks isn’t a good time. …’ like a long time.’ I replied “He doesn’t have to be as huge as Thor is he? ?,'” Goldstein declared. Goldstein explained how he quickly began to train his body even before filming, and added “And look, on the day, I mean, I’m doing 400 pushups that day. I was fit to explode. I did the best I could on that day.”
At this point, Marvel is yet to divulge additional information regarding Goldstein’s MCU future plans. The fact is, Goldstein has said that he’s willing to reprise the role of the Greek god should the franchise knock at his door for any future projects. “Who knows if anything will come of it, who knows, but it was a fun thing to do, and I’m pleased that people seem to have enjoyed it,” Goldstein said. Goldstein is also preparing to work harder to achieve a body fit to Hercules jokes that he will “eat 30 chickens a day from now on” to remain healthy.
